Eats my clothes This thing is a piece of junk. Bought it brand new, then find the "features", first the drawer on the bottom is so small nothing will fit in it, so the soap is stored on top instead of the $100 pedestal. The biggest is that it would randomly shred my clothes, even blue jeans, they had a recall, and they came and put a new gasket on it, now 2 years later it is eating clothes again. WILL NEVER BUY OR RECOMMEND GE EVER AGAIN!!! June 27, 2013
Problem after problem! This is absolutely the worst washer we have ever owned. And that includes one that was already twenty years old when it came to us! It does not wash well at all, our towels have never looked or felt so bad. It makes horrible noise, walks and wiggles everywhere, and now it won't let the fabric softener in. It just stays in the little compartment until I pour in extra water to flush it out. This model is not being sold any longer, thank goodness, but maybe someone who is looking to buy a GE front loader will see this and think twice about it. I wish we could afford to buy a new washer, but for now we are stuck with this one. We wil NEVER buy one like this again! October 6, 2012
Unanswered problems This machine walks as much as 18 inches. Service calls result in no solution, just that what we did or do is the cause. We have tried every suggested, to no avail. Also, the odor is awful!! Last GE MACHINE FOR US. August 21, 2012
